Sadly, this isn't a bug report that's useful because it doesn't contain any
information that would help anyone debug your connection. What software are
you using? What does your network admin say? What does MacTCPWatcher say?

If you're getting no help from the people at your site, I can heartily
suggest you blow $25-ish and pick up Adam Engst's book "Internet Starter
Kit for {Mac,Windoze}".
